HICKORY, N.C., Aug. 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CommScope, Inc., , a world leader in infrastructure solutions for communication networks, announces the introduction of the 30EC Modular Battery Cabinet. This cabinet is designed as a reserve power storage system capable of using multiple vendors' batteries. As a modular adjunct battery cabinet, the design supports increased DSL capacity in previously deployed systems.

The CommScope 30EC Modular Battery Cabinet, with dimensions of 31" wide x 30" deep x 31.5" high can be stacked two cabinets high to double the capacity. This stacking offers a "pay as you grow" approach, keeping initial installation costs to a minimum. The cabinet is designed to accommodate batteries from leading suppliers of lead acid or nickel cadmium telecom batteries.

The Modular Battery Cabinet benefits include: -- two shelves in each module for increase in battery backup -- AC powered battery heating system for prolonged battery life -- separate breakers for installation, turn-up and maintenance control of each battery string -- quick disconnect battery cabling system for each shelf, allowing for efficient installation -- alarm and status signals that report operational conditions to the control cabinet -- weather-hardened enclosures that protect the batteries and other equipment -- multiple conduit and placement options that provide ease and flexibility of cabinet placement next to the host cabinet

"In addition to the above benefits, all CommScope battery cabinets come with our enhanced cooling system and a battery heating system to keep batteries close to the optimal temperature for improved battery performance and longer battery life," said Ted Hally, executive vice president and general manager, Carrier.

Through the Carrier group, CommScope has manufactured over 350,000 enclosures that have been installed worldwide.
